Netflix started showing an English version of the trailer for “Cagaster” today on it’s NX Twitter page which revealed the February 6th release and has given the following synopsis for the anime:

Needless to say, that the trailer leaves one wanting for more. There is a very mature overtone which questions one’s morals over the need to protect civilization. The animation style is similar to that of previous Netflix originals and it goes without mention that Okinawa Gonzo did a fantastic job on the 3DCG animation. As for someone who has not read the manga, the story that the trailer is portraying is one that I would find myself wanting to binge watch. Just the last part of the trailer ending with “So, that’s your answer…” makes me want to watch it immediately. I’m a sucker for cliffhangers like that. Above all, it makes me salivate for the release for Cagaster of an Insect Cage!
